Women’s World Day of Prayer


Women’s World Day of Prayer
The Felixstowe “Women’s World Day of Prayer Service” takes place in the United Reformed Church, Orwell Road at 10.30am on Friday 6th March 2015.
The service theme is from St. John’s Gospel, chapter 13, verses 1-17. Jesus said to them: “Do you know what I have done for you?” A challenge to all to demonstrate the same radical unconditional love for others that Jesus showed when he washed the feet of his disciples. Christian women of the Bahamas have written the Women’s World Day of Prayer service which will be used on 6th March 2015 in over 170 countries as an estimated three million people observe this special day of prayer. The Bahamas consists of over 700 islands, scattered over 100,000 square miles in the Atlantic Ocean, only a small proportion of which are inhabited. Inhabitants refer to the Bahamas as a ‘family of islands.’
In the service, the needs of smallest islands are given as much prominence as larger ones. From sunrise to sunset all over the globe the service will be taking place and in the British Isles alone over 5,000 services will take place. The Felixstowe Service will be followed by a “Hunger Lunch” proceeds of which will go to the Afghanistan project empowering women. The EU will triple each £1 raised.
